The minutes of the February 19, 2002 meeting were approved with one correction on page two, last paragraph, as follows:
Maurice Leatherbury reported for DCSMT that the committee that has been looking into Office XP issues has come to the conclusion that it works with no problems with all of the known applications on campus; therefore, departments are free to make their own decision about when to roll the software product out.
Communication Program Group
Lou Ann Bradley reported for the Communication Program Group and distributed copies of the revised policy for the Addition of Devices to UNT-NET, which had a first reading at the February IRC meeting. Christy Crutsinger seconded the presentation of this new policy. Bill Buntain explained during discussion that the policy covers both communication devices as well as devices which provide communications services (such as servers). In a vote of the Council members present, the policy was approved.
EIS Planning Group
Maurice Leatherbury stated that members of the EIS Planning Group are in California visiting corporate headquarters of Oracle and PeopleSoft, having just returned from a corporate visit to SCT in Pennsylvania. The group has also completed site visits to the University of Houston and UT HSC at San Antonio.
Research Planning Group
Armin Mikler reported for the Research Planning Group that the committee met last month and selected him as Chair. The group will meet again today to develop a new goal statement for the committee.
Student Computing Planning Group
Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner reported for the Student Computing Planning Group that their next meeting will be on April 1st to plan a presentation to students at Freshman Orientation regarding computing services available on campus.
Distributed Learning Team
UNT North Campus
Duncan Engler asked if the IRC will be dealing with the facilitation of the new UNT north campus. Don Grose commented that he believes that all of the Planning Groups will be involved as the project proceeds. Bill Buntain added that the Computing Center is already working with Verizon, the City of Denton, and Co-Serve to get fiber between the main campus and the new north campus building. He stated that the building structure is optimal for communications so they dont anticipate any problems and are trying to get all of the wiring completed before anyone moves out there.
Downloading of Copyrighted Files
Maurice Leatherbury reported that he has been receiving notices from the motion picture industry regarding the downloading of copyrighted files through the web, by students. Several students have been disciplined through the Dean of Students Office, and Maurice said he sent out a blanket email to all students warning about such activities.
